In a Nutshell is a book that explores the life cycle of a plant, but more importantly, readers are given beautiful life lessons on change and growth in this inspirational book for kids, as we see the acorn travel through the seasons.

Through luminous illustrations, In a Nutshell explores the life cycle of an oak tree and how it supports life even after it is gone. An acorn drops from a great oak and grows. Animals nibble at it, a fire threatens it, but overcoming many challenges it eventually towers high in the forest, observing the changing human scene below. Eventually its energy passes into many other life forms. An oak tree can teach much about seeds and seasons and cycles—but it also can make us appreciate the challenges it must overcome.
